Milk chocolate, mint and tarragon. Fascinating nose. Full-bodied, with a silky texture and a long finish. Still holding back, but grand. Racy and full of class. Real deal for Le Pin. Has evolved beautifully.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2008." (Web only 2007) 93 points Robert Parker: "A dense ruby-colored Le Pin, the 1995 offers up aromas of lead pencil, roasted nuts, smoke, spice, fruitcake, and black cherries intermixed with white chocolate. Luscious and full-bodied, with low acidity, but plenty of grip and tannin in the finish, this wine, with its abundant cola, kirsch, and black raspberry flavors, is revealing far more structure since bottling than it did in cask. It appears to be every bit as structured and tannic as the 1996. The 1995 Le Pin will take a few years to come around.
